Picking a Chandelier for Master Bath

Last night after dinner we went to Prima Lighting with the hope to pick out the master bath chandelier. To re-cap, this is the freestanding tub, and the light will hang over it.

This is the crystal ball chandelier that I worked into my design plan.

I found two different sizes in the store (pardon the lousy picture quality from my smart phone). The small one is 6-light, 16" in diameter with a $1,500 price tag. It has all the glitter and shape I want to soften my master bath, but since it's ball-shaped, the chandelier appears so much bigger. I am concerned it might be overwhelming in a relatively small room. 

An associate in the store suggested this oval-shaped (or donut) crystal chandelier as an alternative to the crystal ball as it`s shorter. I don`t find anything unique about it, nor I am really crazy about the look. Do you like it?

And then there is this popular Cyan Design's Janus pendant in chrome (perhaps you remember it from February's Style at Home).

This is what it looks like in the store. It's the right size, simple, subtle and has a bit sparkle, but the downside is that it only comes in one-light and not bright enough for a 12'x13' bathroom. Plus it seems to belong more in a kitchen than a bath retreat.

And then this light caught my attention, and I wondered why. It's the Anemone light by one of my favourite designers Jonathan Adler.
I like that the shape reminds me of a rainshower head, but a all-metal construction makes it appear cold. And my lovely husband`s comment finally made me walk away from it: ``oh this? It looks like octopus attack!``

And then there`s this fabulous Robert Abbey Bling chandelier that Janice used in her own master bath.

So which one do you think will work nicely with the tub?
